Don’t Move That Bullseye

bullseye.jpgOne great thing about living in Chicago is being bombarded by the endless marketing ploys dished out by the often overlooked and under appreciated White Sox.  With the grade-A inferiority complex harbored by many a Sox fan living in the shadows of an historically challenged Cubs franchise to the north, it’s easy to see why the Southside brass does all it can to create a buzz for a team that — on paper — shouldn’t need it considering how successful they’ve been in recent years. 

I have gone on and on with my rhetorical blasts at the seemingly less baseball educated Northsiders — so much so that I have pretty much said all there is to say.  But let me just add this:

You can squak about the 1919 squad throwing the series.  You can jest that the Sox have a hard time filling their ballpark.  You can overlook the Southside’s ’05 World Series championship all you want… but you have to admit one thing: the White Sox make some pretty damn good commercials.

Like this one:

And now that Quentin is out of the lineup, let’s hope that Thome remembers his previous self…

…and let’s hope they don’t move that sign.

Don’t hate me ‘cuz I’m right.

    Losing Quentin is a huge blow to the Sox, but there’s still plenty of pop in that lineup. It’s the erratic pitching staff that will probably doom the pale hose in the end.

    The “pale hose”? Who says that? Anyone? And does anyone outside Chicago say “ChiSox”? No one in Boston refers to the team as the “BoSox.”

    Sorry, tangent.

    Back to my little Bo- and Chi- rant. I meant to say, does anyone from Chicago say “ChiSox”?

    OK, I’m done now. Honest.

    Hiya, Steve. No, no one in the Chi calls them the ChiSox. We just call them: “Da Sox”. We don’t even say “White”. Just “Da Sox.” That’s all you need to say. I think my grand dad used to say “pale horse” but of course, he’s dead now. RIP.
